Stanbury Splash – Sunday 16th January 2022

Stanbury Splash – Sunday 16th January 2022

Report from Megan McCall We turned up super early, one of the first in the carpark and were rewarded with the most amazing sunrise.. before the clouds came in. Early bird catches the worm as they say. I was here on race day as usual with my first team (husband Ross, little boy Jesse – my mascot and our trusty cowbell of course). I braved my leopard print short shorts today because why not and when I ran this race…

Sunday 9th January – Temple Newsam 10

Race Report – Nicola Swann This is the fourth time I’ve done this race and it was great to be back this year after there was no event in 2021.  I’m not quite sure what puts Otley members off this event as there always seem to be a low turn out. Possibly it’s the fact that it’s at the start of January and the weather is unpredictable. Possibly it’s because its’s 10 miles, off road, muddy and hilly! Tough Not…

Saturday 8th January – Yorkshire Cross Country

Great racing from the juniors, 4th team for the Under 15 boys. After Ian Fisher’s win in the senior race many years ago, Ed’s 7th I think must be the next best finish at this event, well done everyone. Full set of results here.

Report from Chris Brunold: The morning of the race dawned with that extra bright light that triggers childlikeexcitement – snow fall in the night? I rushed to the curtains to open them like anadvent calendar – yep there it was white magic layered on everything! The weatherof the Chevin Chase doesn’t disappoint – biblical floods last time I got in for 2015and full-on Christmas in the forest in 2021!At the start line there was a buzz of chatter as the…

Tuesday 28th December – Jolly Holly Jog 10K

Report from Howard Jeffrey When is Howard going to write one of his encouraging and entertaining reports I hear you ask. I don’t know either but in the meantime, here is the report from only my second ‘race’ of this year but what must be about my thirtieth Jolly Holly Jog. I wanted to complete this race to try and stimulate some motivation for next year which has been missing for the last couple of years, a bit like most…

Monday 27th December – Ribble Valley 10K

Report from Richard Smith I took part in the extremely popular Ribble Valley 10K over in Clitheroe, organised by Blackburn Harriers. Very inclusive race from the serious elites to a man dressed as a giant snowman (or snow-woman?).  The course is mildly undulating with a few ups but with that come nice downhill stretches. Over the bridge and a cruel uphill kick to the finish. Lovely surroundings and a route that keeps you interested throughout.  I hadn’t tapered for the…
